Top Descriptions

Though the UNSESCO 6th-century Jvari Church is really no less interesting than many similar churches in the area, many would admit that they visit here primarily for the impressive down to , the confluence of two rivers and the high Caucasus in the background. This church is simply adorned but beautifully positioned, and for that reason alone it draws in continual streams of tourists.

Top Tips

It is possible to walk up here from in about an hour, but for GEL15 - 20 you can get a return easy enough.
As with many such sites in the area, dress codes here are rather strict – as is photography. Try not to offend the locals if at all possible.
The entrance to this site is a common place for beggars to linger, so perhaps have some change handy.

Top Descriptions

This is one of the largest Orthodox Cathedrals on the planet, and although it was only finished being built in 2004 it is no less impressive for it. Set on large and pleasant grounds with multiple buildings and monuments, the free-to-enter ‘Sameba’, as it’s more commonly called, is quite impressive and offers great views of the surrounding city. There are some interesting artefacts inside, but otherwise it’s quite bare.

Top Tips

It might be a good idea to come at dusk, when the building and surrounding city are prettily lit up.
There are frescoes currently being constructed on the ceiling (January 2018), and this church will be even more impressive for it once completed.
There are public bathrooms here (in an out building down a dirt path), but they don’t live up to the standard set by the cathedral. They rarely have toilet paper, either.
The entrance to this site is a common place for beggars to linger, so perhaps have some change handy.
